The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) Global Pediatric Radiology Education & Outreach Program now directed by Hansel Otero, MD, was established in 2008 by Kassa Darge, M.D., Ph.D., Radiologist-in-Chief and Chairman of the Department of Radiology at CHOP. The program supports educational and outreach activities around the world with a special focus in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. In partnership with Addis Ababa University's Department of Radiology, CHOP provides pediatric radiology education during residency and a 2-year pediatric radiology fellowship. Learn more about our outreach program in Ethiopia at www.pedradethio.org.
The department also provides support for a biennial regional pediatric radiology course in Argentina, co-sponsored by Hospital Garrahan, located in Buenos Aires. Semiannually, our department organizes a "Radiology Global Health Exchange" to keep our department and local global health partners informed about our initiatives and foster collaborations. Additionally, to further our international alliances and develop more relevant education content, we have created a Global Radiology Research Fellowship which will begin in the Spring of 2021.
